Have you been hit by a penalty? Find out now with a Google Penalty Assessment

Let’s get started!

Welcome To Search Marketing Group

  • Are you struggling to generate leads from your website?
  • Are you not ranking on 1st Page of Google organically?
  • Are you finding Adwords too expensive with very little results?

You’re plummeting in the search rankings faster than a stone sinking in the sea. What could have happened?

The truth is, it could be any number of things. Your keywords may need a bit of updating, a plugin or script might be interfering, or traffic might have just hit a temporary low point.

Of course, it could be that scary term whispered around digital marketing campfires: “Google penalty”.

If Google — either an employee or the algorithm itself — believes that you are trying to scam the system, a penalty can be placed on your website. This impacts your place amongst the rankings and can be difficult to recover from to regain your top spot.

If you’ve got a penalty, act now. Call us at 1800 732 724 to get back on the right track

How do I know if I have a penalty?

Sometimes it can be difficult to tell whether a penalty has been applied to your website. We can demystify the process and explain exactly what went wrong, how to fix it and how to avoid doing it again.

If you (or your SEO company) have done something to disappoint our Google overlords and incur their wrath, there’s no need to panic. We can have your website set right fast.

What type of penalties could I have?

When it comes to Google, there are two main types of penalties:

  • Algorithmic. Google’s algorithm has decided that your site does not comply with its regulations and has automatically issued a penalty
  • Manual. If the algorithm can’t quite decide whether your site is in violation, a Google employee will be called to take a look. If they believe you do not comply, they will then issue a penalty.

Penalties can be given out for all sorts of things. If your website is overstuffed with keywords? Penalty. If you have too many links from random or low-quality sites? Penalty.

There is a wide range of reasons you could have a penalty on your site. The best thing to do is to talk to one of our experts, as we can advise you on what to do next.

Don’t risk getting on Google’s bad side

The best course of action is to avoid incurring a penalty in the first place. If you have taken on your own SEO up until this point, now might be a good time to reevaluate that decision.

On the other hand, if you have been burned by an SEO company performing black hat tactics, it can be hard to recover. It can be even harder to trust another SEO company to do the right thing for your business.

Investing in a trustworthy and experienced SEO company is one of the best things you can do to bolster your online presence.

We only utilise what hat tactics for our SEO and are completely transparent with our processes. We keep up to date with all algorithm changes (and potential rule changes that come with) and, as a Google Premier Partner, we have insight into the way the engine operates.
